Listening to a song that encompasses the exact feeling and emotion you’re in at any moment in time, past, present or future, is a powerful rush that comes over you as you hear a personally perfect melody. That is exactly how Windsor Blue, Dan Krikorians’ newest album, will affect your life. You can tell through his music, that Dan has the very same emotional mentality when writing his songs.
This Southern California vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, has a plethora of influences around him to inspire and provide variety to his style and growth. His voice is surprisingly amazing, yet subtle and soft. While listening to his melodies, you can hear worldly influences and themes of love, friendship and grief, with travel, adventure and exploration. All of which would not allow you to presume that he is from California. His skills as a writer seem to come from spiritual influences and a strong understanding of the world.
In one song of Dan’s now third album, the mention of snow within a soft melodic voice and harmonious angelic instrumentals actually places you in a field of snow.
Windsor Blue, takes you traveling through the world, as well as makes you remember moments in time, song by song while maintaining Dan’s simplistic style of beats and strums of his guitar. The first time you listen to Windsor Blue, you may find yourself believing that each one of his songs is your favorite. But as you continue to listen throughout the album, you begin to realize that your mood increases better and better with each song.
Dan just finished a few shows close to home in Costa Mesa, Calif. but his music is being broadcast globally. His presence in Europe has elevated his strive to write more and better his music. And you can see that he is influenced by this in his lyrics. You can check out Dan and his music on his Facebook page or by going to his home page. Contact Dan, ask him to play a show for you, you won’t be disappointed.
